    This is really sad, he seemed like a really helpful and nice person. Maybe in the next universe, we will find him...

    A few days ago the book translated to English arrived. I immediately thought of marcus.

    If success in life is judged by the positive impact you left on others then Marcus succeeded well at life.

    I wish I knew him.

    "will be"?

    It tore a part of my heart out, when I heard the news.

    Once, he put out his hand, and invited people along, on a long boring journey.
    I was bit late, but once I grabbed onto his hand, it was a wild ride, that I will never forget.

    And that, is how I define friendship: People, going on wonderful adventures, together.

    This was really sad news.

    I have not been very frequent here the last few years due to beeing too busy, which is why i just discovered this today..

    I remember well my first communication with Marcus, it was on another forum where he was the first to welcomed me more than 9 years ago. In despite that i event didn't konw his name irl, and that he used different aliases here and there, he was clearly distinguishable by his mere style of posting, no further labels was necessary. He was really friendly, helpful and constructive.
